How to Choose Sex Toys?

How to Choose Sex Toys

Editorial Team |

Sex toys are not a new invention; in fact, people have been making sex toys since the dawn of time. We’ll go into the history and the development of sex toys in another post, as here we’ll focus on discussing the general aspects of how to choose sex toys. Our experts have covered all the basics here, so stick with us as we discuss the particulars of various sex toys.

How to Choose Sex Toys?

Selecting sex toys should be a fun and engaging process, and it should never be stressful. This is why we’ve streamlined the entire process, and we always share a detailed product description covering the critical features of each sex toy in our store. But we went a step further, and here we share several questions you need to answer so you can better narrow down what type of sex toy you should consider buying:

  • What is your experience using sex toys? If you are a complete novice, then we suggest you only pick beginner-friendly sex toys like small dildos or compact bullet vibes, but if you have experience in sex toys, you can explore more options.
  • What kind of stimulation are you after? Consider if you are after vaginal stimulation only, or you want a vaginal/G-spot combination toy, or maybe a sex toy that provides simultaneous clitoral and vaginal stimulation. If you are after anal toys, consider the stimulation of a butt plug or anal beads, and choose accordingly.
  • What feel of the sex toy do you like to feel? We are talking about choosing a sex toy that feels realistic, like a lifelike dildo or a pocket pussy, or you want to try something completely different, like a stainless steel dildo or a glass butt plug.
  • Would you like a large or compact sex toy? Consider the ways you plan on using your sex toy, for example, if you are going to use it at home only or if you plan on taking it with you while you travel. If you only use your sex toys at home, you have a greater variety to choose from, but you should pick more discreet sex toys if you want to travel with them and look for models with travel locks.
  • Will you use it alone or with a partner? If you are going to play with your sex toy alone, then you need to choose a model that is ergonomically designed and optimized for solo use, but if you share the fun, you have greater freedom to select.
  • Will you take your sex toy in the shower? If you are a fan of shower sexy play, then always look for waterproof sex toys that can be submerged in water for safe and satisfactory playtime.

Sex Toy Types

Now that our experts have outlined the key benefits of using sex toys, it is time to discuss the different sex toy types, and we’ll share the basic definitions for each type:

  • Vibrators – these are among the most versatile sex toy types, as these come from small finger vibes to large wand vibrators. The designs vary greatly, but all of these have the common vibrating feature, and they can induce pleasurable sensations and satisfying orgasms.
  • Butt plugs – these are designed to stretch the anus and provide stimulation to the nerve endings. These can be used as a way to relax the anus in preparation for anal sex or as a simple way to enhance vagina intercourse.
  • Anal beads – these are specialized toys for anal play and can be used by males and females. These are beads on a string, and they provide the most significant effect when pulled out of the anus during an orgasm.
  • Prostate massagers – these are specialized anal toys for males, as they are shaped in a way to reach and stimulate the prostate. These can be manual or vibrating, and men will experience highly pleasurable orgasms when playing with a prostate massager.
  • Male masturbators – these are advanced versions of the pocket pussy, as male masturbators come with plenty of sophisticated features, and some even provide hands-free use. These are fun to use and are especially useful for helping with premature ejaculation problems or stamina.  

Benefits of Using Sex Toys

Using sex toys is fun and exciting, and on top of everything, there are plenty of health benefits of using sex toys. The obvious advantage of using sex toys is sexual pleasure and orgasms, and satisfaction is key here. But let us also talk about the health benefits you will reap from regular use of sex toys:

  • Sexual satisfaction – sex toys are designed for sexual stimulation, which brings sexual satisfaction. Many sex toys are beautifully designed and can spark arousal even before you use these, which helps the body and mind align and reach the relaxation needed for better satisfaction.
  • Improve your sex life– when couples use sex toys, these provide a new avenue for pleasure. Sex toys bring fresh options and spice up things that may have become stale, and this helps breathe new energy into a relationship.
  • Help with sexual dysfunction – many sex toys are designed to help you explore your body better, which will help you learn what you enjoy most and what makes you climax. It will help you understand your wants, and you can embark on your further sexual exploration with confidence.
  • Help men last longer – some guys may have problems with premature ejaculation, which sex toys can help. There are male sex toys designed to help men learn how to delay their orgasms, learn how to have multiple orgasms, and maintain an erection even after an orgasm.
  • Help alleviate pain – orgasms are a known pain reliever, as the body releases hormones during orgasms, which raise the body’s pain threshold. So, instead of popping a pain pill, grab your favorite sex toy and have an orgasm instead.
  • Improve heart health – using sex toys can help improve heart health. This is due to a complex mechanism of balancing estrogen and testosterone levels, which has a positive effect on heart health, bone health, and skin health.
  • Better sleep – using sex toys leads to better sleep. Many sex toys are optimized for effective stimulation, which allows you to quickly reach an orgasm, which in turn releases oxytocin, endorphins, and other hormones that help promote better sleep.
